The Five Senses Series: Smell

The Five Senses Series: Smell, waterbase, 17" x 14"

T. Watson Bogard was born in Nevada, Missouri.

The artist says this about his work: "I lived in Japan and Germany for nearly fourteen years. Painting and photography helped me understand the cultures I observed as I spun around in my world. In Japan, I studied ink painting; in Germany I painted castles, cathedrals, and myths; in Monterey I painted the ocean; and in Houston I painted the nightlife.

My philosophy is that we are all in this car together and whatever we do affects everyone, so I try to do my very best with whatever I'm doing. I have traveled down many different roads, met a lot of interesting people, and had some powerful experiences along the way. My paintings reflect what I've observed and how my journey is going.

I work with bright colors, light, curiosity, and hope. It is an intense feeling to know I have connected with someone through one of my creations. My paintings hold lots of secrets."
